Cyprus Visa

Web search comes up with different answers on this one - what are visa requirements for SA passport holders for Cyprus (Greek side)? Can't find an official site with rules either.

Some sources say 30 days visit without a visa, others that a visa is required.

Anyone done a trip there recently?

Be prepared for a run around, I applied on behalf of my wife about a year and a half ago....despite me being a UK national and Elaine having ILR they demanded a bank statement and were really rude about it all. The issuing officer was like the bloody SS wanting to know all sorts of details and how we were going to provide for ourselves and that was with me having parents living there!!!!!!!!
